The first male butterfly looks like the better candidate for a breeder. Nice choices. The second dragon male is nice as well, even if the dorsal is a bit jagged. It can be fixed later down the line.

IMO, you have a good eye. The first male is my favorite, of course I love the butterfly pattern! You know that comes from marble, right?

When you breed butterflies, you will get some marbles in the fry.

Yes, very true, but not always. They will always carry the marble gene, but in every spawn, you won't see a marble.

Though what I've noticed is that when you see a butterfly that the inner color looks like it's dripping paint past the white butterfly line:

Like this:



Or this:


The marble is bound to show itself in the nest spawn or so.
